Instructor Stacey Singletary teaches a R.A.D. course.
The TMCC Police Department will offer Rape Aggression Defense (R.A.D.) training to women ages 13 and older in October 2013. R.A.D. is an educational, enhancing and empowering basic physical defense course that teaches realistic, hands-on self-defense techniques to women.
Classes are a total of 12 hours, over a two- or three-day period. Participants must attend all 12 hours. The class times will include: Wednesday, Oct. 23 from 6-9 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 24 from 6-9 p.m., and Saturday, Oct. 26 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
R.A.D. instructor Stacey Singletary says, “Women develop a defensive mindset that says, "I will survive" and empowers them to take action in order to reduce their risk of victimization. I encourage all women to take this course and bring a friend. I guarantee you will learn something new, have fun in the process, and walk away feeling more confident and empowered.”
The goal of R.A.D. is to educate, enhance and empower women to take action in order to reduce their risk of victimization:
“R.A.D. gave me knowledge, power and skills to defend myself against an attacker and get away alive. The knowledge and confidence that I walked away with was more than empowering,” says Julie, a past R.A.D. student.
